➸ Zipper has been replaced with obvious craftsmanship
➸ Some of the inner edges have been surged with great care
➸ One small tear at the top of the zipper (see second to last photo)

➸ An absolute beauty, even with the alterations, this is a near mint piece

 

Why Choose Vintage?

   The idea of a vintage garment is so romantic. I love to try and imagine the stories of the women who have owned these pieces throughout the decades. What happened to these women while these items were being worn? Elated joy? Tragedy? Accomplishment? Adventure? What world history have these clothes witnessed? What corners of the earth have they traveled to? How did they all eventually end up in my arms? What a journey they've all lived! I am positively fascinated by the stories that these garments could tell. It is my mission to breathe new life into each item I sell or wear and continue their incredible stories. I believe that our creative choices, including the way we dress, should be a reflection of our personal narrative and an homage to the past. 

   Not only do I choose vintage for aesthetic and nostalgic reasons, I choose it because our current culture of fast fashion supports an industry of foreign slavery and labor oppression. Fast fashion also produces massive amounts of  waste and chemicals which damage the environment.

   Choose vintage for superior quality, a beautiful story, unique and one of a kind looks, and taking a stand against slave labor and the tyrannies against our environment.
